Manhunt underway in Tobago for cop killer

Acting Commissioner of Police McDonald Jacob has strongly condemned the brazen and heinous killing of Special Reserve Police (SRP) Police Constable Kyle Lashley, last night in Les Coteaux, Tobago.


Reports indicate PC Lashley, who was last attached to Crown Point Police Station, was in the company of friends around 7:10 pm, on Saturday 12th November, 2022, at Providence Road, when a black Kia Cerato motor vehicle stopped alongside them and two armed men exited.


One of the men proceeded to relieve PC Lashley of a gold chain and fired several shots at him. The men then entered the vehicle which sped off.


Officers of the Moriah Police Station responded and conveyed PC Lashley to the Scarborough General Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.


Acting Commissioner Jacob says all resources of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service and National Security will be brought to bear in the investigations into the killing of the young officer and the island will be scoured until the perpetrators of the crime are brought to justice.


He says at this time a contingent of officers from the Inter-Agency Task Force and personnel from the Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force are in the Tobago Division assisting officers there in the apprehension of the offenders in the shortest possible time.

Acting Commissioner Jacob extends sincerest condolences on behalf of the Executive of the TTPS to the family and colleagues of PC Lashley.
